NBA Eastern Conference Finals: Cavaliers vs Celtics…
Read and Know more About Cavaliers vs Celtics-If you believe defense wins championships, the Celtics’ gameplay today made you even more of a believer. Boston shut down the Cavs in all shapes and forms, including giving us one of the worst games we’ve seen from LeBron James in quite a while. James was a -32 for the game with seven turnovers. While he had 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 9 assists he also shot 0-of-5 from behind the arc and 5-of-16 from the floor. Credit the Celtics defense for switching and sending roamers at LeBron to make his entire day difficult. The on-ball defense on LeBron was impressive as well, with Jayson Tatum, Marcus Smart, and Marcus Morris getting numerous deflections and steals.
The rest of the Cavs were quiet as well, with George Hill, Kyle Korver, and J.R. Smith combining for 14 total points. Cleveland as a team went 4-of-26 from the three-point line and shot 36 percent for the game. While it was obvious off day for the entire Cavs team based on what we had seen against Toronto, you have to credit the Celtics for causing that environment.
Meanwhile, the Celtics had an extremely balanced attack:
Jaylen Brown: 23 points and 8 rebounds
Marcus Morris: 21 points and 10 rebounds
Al Horford: 20 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists
The Celtics had everything going for them in Game 1 in an impressive wire to wire blowout. When the Cavs got within 14 points at the end of the third quarter, the Celtics came out with a 7-0 run that essentially ended the game. It’s likely that this is a long series and anything can happen in Game 2 but the Celtics sure put their stamp on this one.
Celtics 78, Cavs 64 – End of 3Q
Well … the Cavs have cut a 28 point lead down to 14. They had 29 points in the third quarter after scoring only 35 in the entire first half.
Jaylen Brown has 23 points and Al Horford has 20 points for Boston. Kevin Love leads the way for Cleveland with 17 points and LeBron James has 15.
Celtics 67, Cavs 47 – 6:54 3Q
The lead was as high as 28 but the Cavs are chipping away ever so slightly. LeBron James still only has 10 points midway through the third quarter and the Cavs are still shooting 2-for-18 from the three-point line.
Celtics 61, Cavs 35 – Halftime
Wooooow. Boston is torching Cleveland so far in this one. The Celtics are forcing anyone but LeBron James to score, and the rest of the Cavs have not come through yet. One on one defense on LeBron has also been spectacular, holding James to only seven points so far, and for the Cavs as a whole to be shooting 34 percent.
Meanwhile, the Celtics have 34 points in the paint and 12 layups. Jaylen Brown has 18 points, Al Horford has 14 points and he’s yet to miss a shot.
